Hawaii Trip Itineraries

South Maui

Destination(s): Maui

Your day of tropical sand and sea begins just after dawn at La Perouse Bay, where, if you are lucky, you will see the spinner dolphins play. Then on to Makena State Park and the majestic Maluaka Beach. Swim only if the current permits. Ready for breakfast? Try the Seawatch Restaurant, just above Wailea Beach, for economy and panoramic views. Keawakapu Beach is my personal favorite swimming beach and Joy?s Place my preferred lunchtime venue. Are you adventurous enough to take a lesson with the Windsurf School? If not, perhaps a stroll through the Art by Loyd Gallery might appeal. Dinner at Stella Blues Caf? guarantees delicious food and, if you want nightlife that?s exciting, try Life?s a Beach. Otherwise, a quiet drink on the sand in front of the Fairmont Kea Lani hotel never fails to enthrall. read more about South Maui

La Perouse Bay, part of the Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Preserve, is located at the end of Makena Alanui Road. The shore is covered in scree, detritus of the last volcanic eruption. Early morning snorkeling is excellent here, near the rocky reef. Trade winds often agitate the waters later in the day. read more about La Perouse Bay
